I’ve been meaning to buy coffee creamer the last THREE times I’ve been at the grocery store, and have even written it in the notes section of my phone, but I keep forgetting! It’s mommy brain, I tell you. Finally, after I realized I forgot it AGAIN, I figured I better make me some, because I don’t want to go to the store one more time and have another brain fart.
So, after I woke up early this morning to nurse, I set out the ingredients for a cashew creamer in my blender. I fell asleep again for a little bit, and when the babe woke up, I ran the blender in the kitchen while she was still in her crib. I don’t know why I didn’t attempt this sooner – the creamer is rich, smooth, and slightly sweet with the addition of dates. Coffee was a treat this morning, and I’m going to do this more often!
*Note – I soaked these cashews for about an hour before I blended them, but you don’t have to. Just simply run the blender a little longer. You don’t have to strain the creamer because cashews make an easy milk.
